Libya PM declared official liberation from Gaddafi regime
Garrett Eisenhour at 12:00 AM ET

On October 23, 2011, the Libyan transitional Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril declared the nation's official liberation from the regime of former leader Muammar Gaddafi and set a schedule for establishing a new government. The announcement came just three days after the capture and death of Libya's former leader Muammar Gaddafi. The UN called for investigations into Gaddafi's death amid uncertainty of how his death took place and called on all states to respect international standards on the use of lethal force during arrests. Gaddafi's death marked a major milestone in the Libyan conflict, which began in February 2011 as part of the pro-democratic movement known as the "Arab Spring."
